Brown Bag Seminar

The Brown Bag Seminar provides an internal forum for our PhD students, postdocs and faculty to present early-stage working papers or research ideas. The seminar is actually held on Wednesday from 1:45 pm to 3:15 pm in O 226–28 (in some cases also parallel via ZOOM if necessary). If several speakers want to present there will be a second slot from 3:30 pm to 5:00 pm.
